With one of the most distinctive features of the city just adjacent, The Linq Hotel and Casino has quickly become a top destination for anyone visiting Las Vegas. The Linq is located inside the old Imperial Palace Hotel, not far from the opulence of the Venetian and the Palazzo, but ongoing renovations to the tower are making the rooms more modern, stylish and comfortable for guests of all ages. There’s an exciting outdoor shopping district just steps from the front door of the Linq Las Vegas, as well as the newest and most eye-catching addition to the Strip, the High Roller observation wheel, which offers guests a chance to see the shimmering city from above and the dramatic mountains that surround the desert valley beyond.
The Linq casino has also been revamped, so there are now more table games and slot machines than ever before, with a full-service poker room and a sports book to watch your favorite college or pro teams on one of more than 200 individual TVs or on one of 12 large screens that line the walls. There are also plenty of casino promotions to benefit from and since the property is a part of the Caesar’s Entertainment Group, you can use the same Total Rewards card that you would at any of the company’s other resort properties, for the ultimate in convenience and potential payouts.
The Linq Hotel Rooms and Suites
Rooms at The Linq Hotel are crisp and modern in neutral tones with brilliant pops of color throughout. While they don’t have the space and luxury that you’ll find at the Bellagio or the Mandarin Oriental Hotel down the street, the king, queen and full-sized pillow top mattresses are exceptionally comfortable and in-room workspaces make the hotel a great choice for business travelers. Pet-friendly rooms are also available upon request at The Linq Hotel and include all of the same amenities that you’ll find in the rest of the hotel. The bathrooms feature roomy shower stalls and there are some with built-in seating to accommodate those with physical disabilities. Hair dryers are in the rooms and the luxury Gilchrist & Soames bath products that are supplied are sure to make any stay at the Linq hotel a sweeter one.
A basic room at the Linq is referred to as a Deluxe room and it can be booked with either one king or two queen or full-sized beds. At around 300-square feet, these rooms are more compact than what you’ll find at many of the other Strip properties, but they do come loaded with some very handy standard features like a 47” LED flat-screen TV and USB charging stations. There’s also a lot of closet space and a bathroom that is spacious enough for two people to get ready at the same time comfortably. There are Deluxe rooms with enviable views of the High Roller available as well, so you’ll definitely want to ask for one when booking if you’d like to have an unforgettable scene every time that you look outside your window.

In a Luxury room, you’ll actually have a bit less room to move around, but incredible views of the liveliest section of the Las Vegas Strip will be yours to enjoy throughout your stay. Luxury rooms come with either a king or two full-sized beds, making them ideal for single travelers or couples who aren’t planning to spend a lot of time in their room.
If you need more space than a single room can offer, The Linq Hotel has Mini-Suites available that can provide you with extra seating and floor space, as well as lovely views of the hotel pool. At 300 to 400-square feet, they can be booked with one king or two queen-sized beds, so they’re suitable for a small party or family traveling together.
The King Suite has 600-square feet of space, a separate living area with a 55” LCD flat-screen TV and comfortable seating so that you can kick your feet up after a long night in the casino or at the clubs. For the most amount of room, book your stay in the Deluxe King or Queen Suite. At nearly 700-square feet, they offer a great place to unwind and hide away from the lights and noise of Las Vegas. Each of these suites comes with a soft, microfiber robe and a pair of slippers, so you’ll be made to feel like a high roller the instant that you step through the door.
Linq Dining Options
If you’re hoping to experience some amazing food during your Las Vegas trip, The Linq has a great selection of delicious offerings just steps from your room and all of the casino action. Check out Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar for a fun and flavorful menu with bold dishes and inventive cocktails. Guy Fieri’s restaurant serves brunch, lunch or dinner, but it also has a late night service that’s perfect for a break from the games or before you head up to the room for the night.

Chayo Mexican Kitchen & Tequila Bar is another fantastic eatery on the premises, providing diners with the chance to sample spicy Latin food in a dynamic environment that includes a DJ and a serious party vibe. If what you’re looking for is something more relaxed, head over to Flour & Barley, a brick-oven pizza joint that serves up savory pies with a variety of house-made toppings, as well as calzones, salads and sandwiches. Have a seat or grab a bite to go from their takeaway window and enjoy your food in the peace and quiet of your room.
F.A.M.E.- Food. Art. Music. Entertainment. is another totally original dining concept that is like nothing you’ve experienced before. Based on traditional Asian markets, you’ll find an array of dining options that includes Japanese fusion burgers from Fukuburger, as well as dim sum, stir-fry, barbeque and ramen, all set to an intoxicating Gangnam beat. Meanwhile, the Haute Doggery nearby employs the use of gourmet ingredients like smoked bacon, garlic chive aioli and aged goat-cheddar cheese to create a hot dog menu that is positively out of the this world.
At the largest Yardhouse location in existence, you’ll find great classic American dishes and an incredible selection of draft beer, all with a view of the High Roller that can’t be beat. Street tacos, sliders and lettuce wraps are just a few of the items that you’ll find on their extensive menu, making this the place to go for a quick snack or a full meal. A large outdoor seating area is available, but it tends to fill up fast, so get here early and stake out a table at one of the most exciting new restaurants on the Strip.
For dessert, The Linq has an on-site Ghirardelli Ice Cream and Chocolate Shop that will thrill your taste buds and satisfy your sweet tooth. Not only do they serve up the world-famous Ghirardelli ice cream sundae here, but you can also choose from a menu of tasty milkshakes, floats and hot chocolate drinks as well. A display of exquisite candies are on display and can be purchased separately or boxed to make a delicious souvenir of your trip to Sin City. If cupcakes are your weakness, there’s a Sprinkles Cupcake location at the The Linq that features yummy treats with ingredients like Madagascar Bourbon vanilla and pure Belgium chocolate, for an end result that is positively irresistible.
Nightlife at The Linq includes one of the hottest venues in town, Brooklyn Bowl, where bowling, dancing and live entertainment have come together at last. You can catch some of the biggest names in music here on any given night and bowl a few frames while the party rages behind you. Brooklyn Bowl also has gourmet food on hand, so if you get a hankering for something to munch on in the middle of your game, there’s no reason for you to even leave your lane. If you’d rather sample some of the world’s best frozen concoctions, go down to the Purple Zebra, a self-serve daiquiri bar that features 20 different flavors and a hallucinogenic atmosphere that will leave you feeling like a real-world Alice in Wonderland.
For those who truly want to see the latest changes to Las Vegas up-close, the Linq is definitely the place to go. While the rooms may not be as lavish as those that you’ll find at the nearby Wynn or Encore, there’s no question that this property offers the chance to personally experience what has quickly become the most exciting segment of the Strip bar none.
